Petfinder is once again sponsoring Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month during November. This is a special emphasis on older pet adoptions designed to bring attention to the great qualities of older animals and to encourage people to open up their hearts and homes to a senior pet.

Big Boy is one of the over 100 cats at Good Mews Animal Foundation who are waiting for their forever homes. Below is a special message from Big Boy (originally posted on the Good Mews Facebook page):
“Guess what November is?? Adopt-A-Senior-Cat Month! Good Mews is having a special and because I am considered a senior, I am part of it! All cats 7 years and older have a reduced adoption fee of $65 and go home with a goody-bag!
I sure hope November is my lucky month! I have overheard some visitors say they liked me and thought I was cool, but I was too old for them. I am only 13 . . . good grief!! That is not old! Now 18 would be old, but not 13! I am still an active guy. I love to run really fast through the shelter and will climb up a cat tree at lightning speed. An old man can’t do that, right? So I am not old!
I can still play like a little kitten. I did used to be a little grumpy and would nip at you if you bothered me, but I don’t really do that anymore. I have learned to be really loving and have even cuddled on laps. I would love to have a home of my own with someone I can bond with. When I like someone a lot, I will follow them around everywhere they go. So if you would like to adopt a senior in November, please consider me. I promise, I will be the best friend you ever had!”

About Good Mews Animal Foundation (from the website)
Good Mews is a cage-free, no-kill cat shelter offering an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro Atlanta area. They provide a safe haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 6,500 cats in forever homes. The shelter receives no government support and relies solely on donations of time, services, goods and money from its many supporters and local businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents on any given day – most of whom reside at the Shelter in Marietta, with some cats residing in foster homes.
